Blanket Stitch – How to do the blanket stich


Hello, this is Needlepointers.com tutorial
on how to do the blanket stitch. The blanket stitch got its name because the
stitch was used to hold down the edge on a blanket. This decorative stitch is
used as a edge stitch to finish seems, to apply
applique to a project, and decorate crazy quilts. To start thread a needle & knot the end. Now the anchor stitch must be created. To
do this bring the needle up from the back about a quarter inch from the edge. Next, poke the needle up from the back again through the same spot forming a
vertical bar. Insert the needle under the anchor stitch at the edge. Insert the needle from the front to the
back about a quarter inch away from the
anchor stitch. Pull the thread through keeping the thread loop under the
needle pull it through until it’s tight and the
vertical bar straight up and down. Insert the needle from the front to the
back about a quarter-inch away from the blanket stitch. Again, pull the thread through keeping the thread
loop under needle. Pull it through until this tight and the vertical bar is straight up and down. Then continue making stitches. It is that simple. Visit Needlepointers.com, your one stop

  6. Hi. Thanks for your question. We have two other videos about the blanket stitch. The links are in the description above.

  7. Would you be referring to the young man who does blanket stitch on his towel toppers to start and rambled about everything BUT the damn stitch for 6 1/2 minutes in a 4 part series? Yeah, I agree. 🙂

  8. am I back handed or something….just asking, as I have looked at more blanket stitch videos and I seem to work towards me which is easier (for me) working down the left side of my work so the straight edge is in line with the stitches as that are shown. but for some reason I cannot work away from me….any tips to rectify this, or is this just me
